It's inelegant, Spartan, garish and utilitarian but it's a USA Buck and it does what a Buck does well. Here it is, my new(ish)112 slim Ranger. Light, sturdy, and slim clipped to the RFP exactly as advertised! Extra points for the tip-up deep carry clip straight from the factory. Big bang for little bucks.

Partly because the blade shape I use most often is a sheep's foot I love Stockmans. I wonder if the Chinese relocated the sheep's foot to the left end to make it easier to open without making it stick up above the other blades like many Stockmans do. It never ocurred to me that sheep's foot blades remaining further out of the handle made Stockmans uncomfortable in the hand until I read that on the internet but some people do not like a high sheep's foot. I believe Stockmans are made with high sheep's foot blades to make the most frequently used blade quick to open. For those who think it's a problem switching the sheep's foot and spey might alleviate the problem. It does make the 371 recognizable as Chinese.
